Moving Sucks

Well my family and I recently did a major life change.  We moved from one state to another.  We went from far west coast to far east coast in the course of, well it took us a 4 day drive here.  Not fun at all. 
I drove the 26' moving truck, with two children, two ferrets and a small dog all in the front seat with me.  I followed my husband who drove his little car, had my other child, two cats, several rats, hamster and the snakes...
We were PACKED full...OH and I was towing my explorer behind the moving truck.  I hated driving that thing.  I went SO SLOW up mountains and hills because I was SO FULL. 
AND we slept in the vehicles, because well hey, moving and even traveling is expensive....and gas was CRAZY in that truck.  And it was so uncomfortable.  I rarely slept, couldn't get comfortable...blah blah blah

Birchbox September Box

I used to be a member of Birchbox about a year and a half ago but dropped it because the bags and boxes started to get really bad, and wasn't even worth $5 much less $10. 
They seem to be getting their act together though so I decided to give it one more shot.  It is upped to $12 a month, includes shipping costs. 
Hopefully they don't crash and burn like they did a couple of years ago.  It was BAD.  I wouldn't have recommended ANYONE to Birchbox.  The samples were lame and you didn't even get deluxe sizes like you did with Ipsy or any of the other beauty subscriptions.  These were paper samples...?!?
Anyways, this is what I received in my September Box - and I'm pretty happy about it all. 

Ipsy September Beauty Bag

I've been a member of Ipsy before it was Ipsy.  It was myglam when it first started.  They have such a WONDERFUL Beauty Subscription for only $10 a month!!  And you get full size to trial size items.  I had a product in there for the month of September worth $19 alone!  Totally worth it.  Sometimes it can be hit or miss on a color you just don't like, etc. 

The New Keurig 2.0

I received recently an email from stating I would be receiving the new Keurig 2.0 before it hit the stores to test and review. 
  I was so excited, I did a little dance!! 
  I was even more excited when I got this product in the mail!! It was very easy to work and set up. Easy to set the clock, change the background color, you can even change the water reservoir colors!! Not only did I receive the Keurig but I also received a carafe to go with it. And K-Cups. Not just the normal one cup K-cups but I got ones to make a full Carafe. It's so easy to use. Pop a K-Cup in the slot. Either a one cup or a full pot. You can set how many cups you would like to make as well. I normally just set it to 4-5 because there are a few people in this household who drink coffee with me!!
